A Michigan man and woman convicted of trying to extort $680,000 from â€œGleeâ€? actor John Stamos by threatening to sell compromising photos were each sentenced to four years in prison Friday. U.S. District Judge R. Allan Edgar in Marquette said the photos never existed, according to a federal prosecutor. Scott Edward Sippola, 31, and Allison Lenore Coss, 24, could have faced up to nine years in prison for convictions of conspiracy and interstate communications to extort money. Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Lochner said a statement from Stamos was read in court. In it, Stamos said he had been slandered and his reputation impugned.

the university to apply for state appropriations. The Department of Residence will pay for damages to Schilletter University Village apartments because itâ€™s not a general fund facility. Madden said the Federal Emergency Management Agency will help cover damages that happened between June 1 and Aug. 31. He said the university now has 99 sites that were affected by some kind of ďŹ‚ood damage, and FEMA has a long, detailed process to go through. Madden said more than 200 trees were knocked down, and FEMA has been out on Veenker Memorial Golf Course marking each fallen tree using GPS. He also said some of the damages from the storm are top priorities, and some projects like Hilton have been fast-tracked. Although itâ€™s expected Hilton will be open by Nov. 4, in time for the ďŹ rst basketball
game, he said the track at Lied Recreation Athletic Center wouldnâ€™t be ready in time for the indoor track season, so itâ€™s being temporarily patched and glued back down. Madden said Recreation Services manages Lied, and the building is insured. The ISU athletic department rents the space for about four hours a day, and if the university isnâ€™t fully reimbursed for the track, the department will probably be responsible for its fair share, Madden said. He didnâ€™t say if the track is expected to be fully covered by insurance, or who will be responsible for the repairs and new basketball ďŹ‚oor at Hilton. â€œOur goal is to get things repaired in three pieces,â€? Madden said. The ďŹ rst goal is substantially done, getting areas clean, safe and dry, Madden said. Contracts with cleanup crews are being reimbursed after the crews submit receipts, and Madden said so far some bills have been submitted, with
billing to date reaching several million dollars. The process is being reviewed by FEMA, but Madden wouldnâ€™t say how the university is expecting to pay for its share of the damages. The second and third steps will be repairing and mitigation. The university and the city of Ames have been discussing broader mitigation efforts, including managing river ďŹ‚ows from Squaw Creek and the South Skunk River, Madden said. Madden said a task force for mitigation efforts has been started, but it could take a year or so to complete its efforts. In the Scheman Building and Hilton, some simple mitigation steps can be taken such as reinforcing door frames and using thicker glass, but Lied could be a bit of a problem because the water crept up through the ďŹ‚oor, which is why the track bubbled, Madden said. He said all of the studies havenâ€™t been completed, but â€œall of the buildings can stay where they are.â€?

Norman Borlaug Lecture
David Beckmann, Bread for the World Jo Luck, Heifer International Grassroots Efforts in the Fight against Global Hunger
Dr. Norman Vorlaug (1914-2009) was a Cresco, Iowa, native whose discoveries sparked the Green Revolution. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 for his contribution to world peace through his wheat research and production that saved millions of lives worldwide. He founded the World Food Prize in 1986 to recognize the achievements of individuals who have advanced human development by improving the quality, quanitity or availability of food in the world.
Monday, October 11, 2010 8 p.m., Sun Room, Memorial Union Iowa State University
A reception and student poster display will precede the lecture at 7p.m. in the South Ballroom David Beckmann is president of Bread for the World, a faith-based organization that seeks to inďŹ‚uence leaders in Washington to end hunger at home and abroad. Through Bread for the World he led a grassroots effort to persuade the U.S. government to increase funding for the ďŹ ght against hunger as well as develop more focused policies and long-term solutions. During Beckmannâ€™s tenure, Bread for the Worldâ€™s membership has nearly doubled, and Congress has tripled its poverty-focused development asssistance. Beckmann is the author of two books, including the newly released Exodus from Hunger.
Jo Luck is president of Heifer International, an organization that teaches the worldâ€™s resource-poor and hungry how to become self sustaining. Heiferâ€™s unique public education initiative links grassroots donors in wealthy countries to recipients in developing countries. It provides extremely poor families with food- and income-producing animals as well as a values-base model for community development. Under Jo Luckâ€™s leadership, Heifer Internationalâ€™s supporters have grown from 20,000 to 500,000, and its message of sustainable to hunger has reached the homes of hundreds of thousands of Americans. In conjuction with the annual World Food Prize Celebration, this lecture is coordinated by Iowa State Universityâ€™s Nutritional Sciences Council and cosponsored by the University Committee on lectures (funded by the Government of the Student Body)

One of the new activities that will highlight the weekâ€™s events is the CALS student dance. The dance will take place Wednesday at the Maintenance Shop, from 9 p.m. to midnight. Alpha Zeta, a national agricultural honorary, professional society, is sponsoring the dance. Crawford said the dance is a way to increase student involvement and have fun. Other events CALS students can become involved in are the Ag Olympics, which will take place at 1 p.m. Monday, and a softball tournament at 5:30 p.m. Thursday. Britney Heim, junior in agriculture and life sciences education and co-chairwoman of the CALS Week Committee, said the Ag Olympics will consist of teams of two men and two women, representing the various clubs in the CALS. The teams will compete in milk-chugging, haybale moving, water-pail carrying and egg-tossing contests, among others. The daily barbecues held on Central Campus as part of the celebrations are free to all ISU students. CALS Week T-shirts will be sold for $10 at the barbecues. The money raised from the T-shirt sales will go toward CALS club allocations and the cost of the barbecues. Heim said that CALS Week is a way of showcasing the importance of agriculture. â€œAgriculture impacts everyone at some point in their daily lives,â€? Heim said. â€œItâ€™s good to remind people of that.â€?
>>al-Obaidi.p1 tact Bedor, suggesting different galleries and exhibits for which al-Obaidi should apply. â€œItâ€™s difficult because Iâ€™m not young,â€? al-Obaidi said. â€œIf I was younger than this age, it would be easier for me to go to the galleries and exhibits ... but right now itâ€™s quite difficult for me because I cannot go through the whole process and ... travel to the galleries.â€? Anderson is the social justice chair of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ames. She says the fellowship was designed for use as a gallery to exhibit artists chosen by the churchâ€™s Art Exhibit Committee. â€œAs soon as I met him and saw his work, it was my hope that we could bring him to Ames,â€? Anderson said. Al-Obaidiâ€™s exhibit, â€œCaravan of Exile,â€? was on display at the fellowship Aug. 30 to last Friday. His paintings were for sale at the gallery, with prices ranging from $250 to $3,000, a major drop from the $40,000 for which they once sold in Iraq. Today, al-Obaidi spends his time caring for Sawsan, driving Bedor to her classes at DMACC and, of course, painting. â€œThe best job in all the world, in all the life,â€? al-Obaidi said, â€œthe best job is the art.â€? In his art, al-Obaidi uses copious amounts of paint, drenching his canvases in color and texture. Common subjects of his work include Iraqi women, birds and horses. â€œI paint women and children and animals without men,â€? al-Obaidi said. â€œI donâ€™t paint the men. He is terrible ... the man make the war.â€? â€œThe woman is great in life ... the woman is a mother, and we can interpret it as a home.â€? Anderson said al-Obaidiâ€™s paintings are deeply rooted in his culture and express themes of humanity. â€œItâ€™s about community and family,â€? Anderson said, â€œnot about creed and the things that divide us.â€? In Iraq, al-Obaidiâ€™s paintings often alluded to poverty, politics and violence, but like everything else in his life, his work has changed. â€œThere is a lot of subject about the refugee and about the human being,â€? al-Obaidi said. â€œIf you read the title of my show, [â€˜Caravan of Exileâ€™], you can see the subject is new

about my works.â€? Even his use of color has transformed. In Baghdad, alObaidi chose shades of brown and gray. In Syria, he used brown and ocher. â€œIn America, I paint with red and violet,â€? al-Obaidi said. â€œI feel safer here than in my country.â€? Bedor explained that the same colors that meant danger or violence in Iraq mean life in America. â€œHeâ€™s tending to paint more for the life and be more optimistic and hopeful,â€? Bedor said. Anderson said she was surprised by the optimism in alObaidiâ€™s paintings. â€œAt ďŹ rst I was looking for a lot of themes of destruction, because I thought through the eyes of an American who wasnâ€™t happy about the war,â€? Anderson said, â€œbut I was surprised to see that many of his paintings are about ... the restorative power of the imagination. Theyâ€™re about dreams.â€? On a rainy Sunday afternoon, al-Obaidi sits at home with his family and paints. The strokes of his brush seem to soothe everyone in the room, including him. He says his favorite time to paint is in the middle of the night. â€œThe night is very quiet,â€? alObaidi said. â€œAnd romantic,â€? added Sawsan with a smile. After having a heart attack about three months ago, however, al-Obaidi tries to follow a better sleep schedule to aid in his recovery. Sawsan and Bedor sit behind al-Obaidi, watching him work. â€œHe wonâ€™t start a painting unless my mom or I can see the process,â€? Bedor said. Al-Obaidi has never had a studio; he prefers to work
from home so he can be with his family, especially now that his wife depends on his care. He says he values the advice of his wife and daughter when it comes to his paintings. â€œThirty-ďŹ ve years I am sitting behind him while he paints,â€? Sawsan said smiling. â€œHe is good man, he is good father, he is very good husband. I donâ€™t feel he is my husband. I feel he is my best friend.â€? Al-Obaidi is currently painting a piece for a Des Moines patron. In a setting typical of al-Obaidiâ€™s work, women head to the market with their laughing, playing children. â€œThese people are very simple and very pure,â€? al-Obaidi said, gazing nostalgically at the canvas. â€œThere arenâ€™t a lot of problems in their life.â€? â€œIn Baghdad, we had a big farm, and I like people who work at the farm or in a small village.â€? Sawsan suggests the name â€œGood morning, Iowaâ€? for the piece, and so it is christened. Although he misses Iraq, al-Obaidi said he doesnâ€™t plan to ever return. â€œI shall stay in America,â€? alObaidi said. â€œIt is difficult now to live in Iraq. There are a lot of problems in Baghdad now. They didnâ€™t choose the government. Theyâ€™re afraid. They kill people.â€? On the wall in the entrance of their home hangs alObaidiâ€™s only painting to make it to the U.S., a small depiction of an Arabic horse, a small reminder of the life the family left behind. Al-Obaidi said one day he may return to darker themes of suffering and pain. â€œIn the future, I try to paint paintings about ... the problems and the violence in Iraq,â€? al-Obaidi said. â€œNow, I paint about the peace.â€?

Election 2010 Attorney General
Brenna Findley (R) Attorney from Dexter Former chief of staff for Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa Brenna Findley’s campaign is based off of supporting Iowa’s small businesses, cultivating economic growth, defending the Constitution and protecting life and “traditional marriage.” Findley wants to challenge the Patients Rights and Affordable Care Act on a constitutional basis in court.
Tom Miller (D) Serving in his seventh four-year term as attorney general, ﬁrst elected in 1978. Tom Miller places an emphasis on crime, consumer protection and advocating for farmers. Miller pushed for laws to protect farmers who enter contracts with large agriculture businesses. Another larger priority is to maintain a partnership with the Department of Human Services to promote greater awareness of the need to pay child support.
Dave Jamison (R) Dave Jamison has been the Treasurer of Story County since 1995. He stresses on investing and treasure managements, “with a portion of [Iowans] retirement funds and other investments remain in-state to support economic development.” Jamison also wants to have an online database for all state bills to be paid online.
Secretary of Agriculture
Michael Fitzgerald (D) First elected state treasurer of Iowa in 1982. He invested more than $2 billion of state operating funds into The Great Iowa Treasure Hunt program as well as college saving programs, which also includes any unclaimed property. Fitzgerald says he is working to better ﬁnancial literacy among all people throughout Iowa.
Bill Northey (R)
Francis Thicke (D)
Bill Northey has run on a platform of stressing the importance of renewable energy in Iowa and protecting our natural resources. Iowa is ranked second in the amount of wind power production among states in the U.S., and Northey wants to keep this green movement going by producing more sustainable energy sources like turbines, stands, and reducing the environmental impact of farming. Northey recognizes that we need to cut budgets and staff, but he want to “make things more efﬁcient and smarter in order to save money.”
Francis Thicke wants to consider the future beneﬁts of sustainable energy to farmers and use that as a basis for assessing our future investments in those types of projects. He says it’s very important to establish technologies to help farmers produce using sustainable cropping systems. Environmental impact is also an important issue to Thicke, and he wants Iowa to establish air quality standards for animal agricultural production wastes that would protect not only the environment but also the quality of life of rural residents.

By Nyajouk.Deng iowastatedaily.com A group of about 300 people gathered to dedicate the large, gleaming metal and glass structure known as Hach Hall on Friday. Hach Hall, the new chemistry facility, is a state-of-the-art building that provides “vital infrastructure” for the future students and faculty of the chemistry department. “It’s ﬁnally time that we have a building beﬁtting for our department,” said ISU President Gregory Geoffroy. Hach Hall includes stateof-the-art classrooms and laboratories that will help Iowa State stay competitive in the research ﬁelds, while providing a better research environment and better quality equipment. Gina Righi, a senior in agricultural biochemistry, will not have the chance to take a class in Hach Hall because of her upcoming graduation in the spring. Righi said that students who will be taking labs in Hach Hall are “very lucky” because the research they do will be more accurate helping them learn better. Righi also said that Gilman Hall, the older chemistry building, “doesn’t even compare the newer hall.” Toshia Zessin, graduate student in chemistry, agrees that Hach Hall is an extraordinary building.

that she feels very privileged to be working inside of the “upto-date” and “edgy” building. Zessin has been working in the building for about two months now. The dedication featured several speakers including Geoffroy and Dan Saftig, president of the Iowa State Foundation, which works to get funding for various projects on campus. Saftig said Hach Hall was a result of a “long-standing dream” that was many years in the making and said that Hach Hall is the “latest in a line of new innovative buildings” here on campus. The building is named after the Hach family which in-
cludes Kathryn Hach Darrow and her late husband Clifford Hach, who are both ISU alumni. Clifford Hach was a graduate of the chemistry department and started Hach Chemical Company. Portraits of the two greet people as they walk into the lab area of the ﬁrst ﬂoor. Michael Whiteford, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, said the donation the Hach family provided the university was “a gift that would lead the way for a muchneeded chemistry building.” The Hach family contributed a gift of $10 million to go toward the building of the new chemistry facility.
>>DELISI.p1 number of offenses, the victim’s costs of the crime, the costs of the criminal justice resources utilized for each case [investigation, arrest, attorneys, adjudication, etc.], the cost of incarceration on a daily basis, the average time served and the opportunity costs of the offender’s time. “The biggest factor in calculating the cost of crime was society’s willingness to pay estimates for prevention programs focusing on helping those at risk for antisocial behavior,” DeLisi said. “People have proven to be very balanced about crime control. We’ve agreed that it’s better to pay money now than to let these criminal careers grow until nothing can be done for them later.” “Most people view the cost of murder as an incalculable thing,” DeLisi said. “A single horrifying crime can shock the entire country. This research helps promote prevention programs because putting a number on the cost of homicide makes it that much more shocking when one sees just how high that number is. It’s far less expensive to prevent these crimes than to have all those costs add up, especially when one considers that most of these ca-

reer criminals commit murder more than once.” DiLisi and his research team also calculated the average costs of rape, armed robbery, aggravated assault and burglary, which were $448,532, $335,733, $145,379 and $41,228, respectively. While these numbers are incredibly high, DeLisi believes that much is already being done to bring those costs down. “What one has to keep in mind when looking at this research is that the majority of these cases are career criminal adults in their 40s, 50s and 60s, before preventative programs like we have now really started
Kathryn Hach said that the “gift that was made was a gift of gratitude.” Hach said the humble beginnings of her and her husband’s company would not have been possible without Iowa State University. The Hach family also sponsors a scholarship for undergraduate chemistry students. Diana Merritt, senior in chemistry, said her education at Iowa State is only possible because of the generosity of the Hachs. Merritt also said the new building will excite new students to learn and conduct research in chemistry. “Hach represents the reason why students want to study chemistry at ISU,” she said.
to take effect,” DiLisi said. “The study of early child development is a big business nowadays,” he said. “Lots of research is being done to learn more about the causes of anti-social behavior. There are also a large number of prevention programs nowadays that aim to stop delinquent behavior now as opposed to later. There are programs focusing on everything from helping youth at risk of antisocial behavior to rehabilitating convicted criminals so they can rejoin society.” Unfortunately, not everyone is responsive to those conventional methods. “Imagine you’re the teacher of a classroom,” DeLisi said. “The children are talking and being disruptive, and some are even ﬁghting with one another. So you turn the lights on and off, indicating for the class to calm down and pay attention. It works for almost everyone, but there is always a small number of people that just don’t respond to preventative or correctional programs. The problem is that some folks are so antisocial, you can’t help them. The good news is that most of society has that willingness to pay for prevention programs helping those people that are capable of getting better.”

FACES celebrates diversity By Micaela.Cashman @iowastatedaily.com FACES of Ames 2010 will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Bandshell Park. FACES, which stands for “Families of Ames Celebrate Ethnicity,” aims to encourage diversity within the city of Ames and offer opportunities for residents to connect with each other as well as local businesses. Entertainment at the Bandshell stage will take place all day, and businesses, nonproﬁts and community groups will have booths set up, complete with information and activities. The event is free for businesses to participate. The businesses have their logos included in a FACES brochure. Currently, 40 businesses are scheduled to attend, and that number is anticipated to grow. Josh Kriz of United Ames said Ames businesses participate in FACES because “they help make Ames a diverse and unique community.” One of the requirements for businesses to take part in FACES is having an interesting activity for attendees. “We don’t want it to just be a typical event where you are just paraded from booth to booth,” Kriz said. “We see this as an all-day activity for you, your family and friends to learn more about our community.” He added that he is encouraging businesses to come up with a unique activity by offering awards such as the “People’s Choice,” in which everyone will vote on their favorite booth. “If people are willing to take the time on a Saturday in October to come out and learn about Ames, we want to provide them with an opportunity for a great experience,” Kriz said.

Big name on campus: Christopher Williams Christopher Williams, associate professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering, will see his invention put to the test. Williams created Bioasphalt, a mixture of bio-oil and asphalt, with his former graduate students Jared Brown, Cody Ellens, and Anthony Pollard. Bioasphalt is a green replacement for asphalt that improves the performance of pavements in extreme temperature. It is a product of Avello Bioenergy. Now the Bioasphalt has been used in an mixture that helped pave a Des Moines bike trail. Jeb Brewer, city engineer for the city of Des Moines, introduced the project in a news release. “We have a fairly active program for ﬁnding ways to conserve energy and be more sustainable,” Brewer said. “We’re interested in seeing how this works out and whether it can be part of our toolbox to create more sustainable projects.” Daily Staff

ISU student turned CEO Preszler, ISU alumnus, shares campus experience, post-college career path By Micaela.Cashman @iowastatedaily.com Trent Preszler grew up on a cattle ranch in South Dakota and attended a one-room schoolhouse. Now at just 30 years old, Preszler is CEO of Bedell Cellars in Long Island, N.Y., a nationally recognized winery owned by Michael Lynne, who produced “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. What year did you graduate? What did you get your degree in? I graduated in 1998 with a B.S. in interdisciplinary studies from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. It was a broad-based course of study I designed myself, called “Global Science Policy and Bioethics,” which reﬂected my academic interests at the time. What did you do after you got your undergrad degree? I won a Rotary Scholarship to study plant biology at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, where I was also a research scientist at the Royal Botanic Garden in the U.K. After completing my postgraduate diploma in Edinburgh, I returned to the U.S. and earned a M.S. in agricultural economics from Cornell University in New York. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in horticulture at Cornell, which I am working on ﬁnishing up part-time while also running a company, Bedell Cellars, on Long Island, N.Y. Did you originally start in that program when you came to Iowa State or did you have other career aspirations? Actually when I ﬁrst came to Iowa State University as an 18-year-old in 1995, I thought I wanted to be a veterinarian, because I had grown up on a cattle ranch in South Dakota. But that plan ended after I didn’t do very well in organic chemistry class. What activities or organizations were you involved in? While at ISU, I was a Freshman Honors Program section leader, I played saxophone in the varsity football marching band, I was vice president of the Liberal Arts and Sciences Student Council, and I was director of legislative affairs for the Government of the Student Body.

What is your favorite thing about Iowa State? The campus itself. When I walk around those beautiful buildings and the open spaces, I feel a connection to speciﬁc time and place in my life that I will never forget — a time that in many ways shaped who I am today. I see students on campus today, and I remember all the thoughts and fears and excitement running through my veins when I was in their shoes. Describe your career path. My ﬁrst job after college was as an intern in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in Washington, D.C. I had an incredible learning experience working alongside President Bill Clinton’s team of advisers for science, agriculture and the environment, but it also helped me realize that I was not interested in a life in politics. I was more passionate about issues and ideas than process —

What duties does your job entail? As CEO I am responsible for overseeing the management of the entire company, which primarily involves making sure our management team is positioned for maximum success. On any given day I could be doing a range of things, from compiling ﬁnancial statements to picking grapes to meeting with a restaurant customer. It is a very diverse job because wineries are complex and multi-faceted operations.
What do you wish you would have known while in college that you know now? That life moves by so fast. I would have taken it slower in college. When you’re a young college student, I don’t think you have a full appreciation for savoring every moment because the moments seem endless.

‘Burst down closet doors once and for all’
Our college years are arguably the most defining time of our lives. We build lasting friendships, gain valuable experience and learn how to survive the world on our own. We come from different backgrounds with a common goal of learning, growing and, one day, graduating. Though college is portrayed as an almost magical place where we can, at last, be ourselves and find the niche that is a perfect fit, the sad truth is that college can be one of the roughest places for someone to live an authentic life. Today marks National Coming Out Day, a time where lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, along with allies, come together with one simple, powerful message — it’s OK to be you. As simplistic as that message may seem, it can literally be life-altering for LGBT students and allies. In the past month, we have seen an alarming rate of student suicides, such as Tyler Clementi of Rutgers University, and five others. All six students were victims of bullying and harassment for being gay or thought to be gay. With these tragedies, it’s time to start asking ourselves some questions. What if each of these young people had someone in their life that said, “It’s OK to be you, and it gets better?” Could the parents and friends of these young people have been spared this sadness if we stopped thinking of LGBT people as sinners and freaks and started seeing them for what they are — brothers and sisters, colleagues and friends, family and neighbors? Today, in light of the numerous suicides and reports of violence against gay people, this Editorial Board believes it has never been more important to live an authentic life. To us, that means being ourselves and doing everything in our power to help others be proud of who they are. Today, on National Coming Out Day, we encourage you to be proud of who you are — no matter what your sexual orientation may be. Further, for the sake of lives hanging in the balance, it is time for us to realize that we all played a role in the death of Tyler Clementi, Raymond Chase, Asher Brown, Billy Lucas and Seth Walsh. Whether we make gay jokes, support discriminatory policies such as “don’t ask, don’t tell,” are ashamed of being gay ourselves, or don’t speak out when we see others being bullied, we all play a part in the “closet culture” that is contaminating our communities and taking the lives of our friends and peers. But the silver lining is that we each have the power to create change and end the “closet culture” that depends on fear, hate and ignorance to keep LGBT people from living an authentic life. It is time for us to give LGBT people, who fear for their lives and safety, the hope they need. Our charge can be taken from Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in California, who said, “Burst down those closet doors once and for all, and stand up and start to fight.” Today, we must fight in order to give others hope.

America’s need for weed By Victor.Hugg iowastatedaily.com
Support for the legalization of marijuana comes from those who are both medicinal and recreational users. The fact that it does not have adverse affects is one of the main arguments supporters use. Courtesy photo: Wikimedia Commons
Marijuana proven as safer alternative to alcohol, tobacco
ast Wednesday, Dustin Moskovitz, one of the co-founders of Facebook, confirmed that he had donated $50,000 to California’s Proposition 19 — or the “Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010.” Sean Parker, co-founder of Napster and a former president of Facebook, followed suit, donating $100,000 to the cause. Even the Iowa State Daily Editorial Board endorsed the legalization of marijuana, albeit only for medicinal purposes. Thankfully, our government is slowly recognizing that marijuana provides relief from pain, nausea and other symptoms for many individuals who have not been treated successfully with conventional medications. It is effective in reducing nausea
induced by cancer chemotherapy, stimulating appetite in AIDS patients, reducing intraocular pressure in people with glaucoma and reducing muscle spasticity in patients with neurological disorders. At the time of writing, medical marijuana is legal in Washington D.C., and in 15 states: Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia and Washington. I am hopeful that California will soon join that list, and I encourage the Iowa General Assembly to heed the Iowa Board of Pharmacy’s recommendation that marijuana be allowed for medicinal usage. Yet there are many reasons why cannabis should be legalized outright. Prohibition has failed to control the use and domestic production of marijuana; millions of Americans smoke weed. In fact, it is the biggest cash crop in the United States. Many
even several weeks exhibit no decrease in work motivation or productivity. Among working adults, marijuana users tend to earn higher wages than nonusers. College students who use marijuana have the same grades on average as nonusers. A legal market for marijuana

American adults prefer marijuana to the use of alcohol as a mild and moderate way to relax. They use marijuana because they choose to, and one of the reasons for that choice is their personal observation that the drug has no practical liabilities and has easy-to-manage side effects. No one has died from merely smoking weed, as marijuana does not have adverse effects; it is well established that marijuana is not toxic to humans. There is no convincing scientific evidence that weed causes psychological damage or mental illness. In fact, marijuana overdoses are impossible, in that one cannot absorb a lethal amount of THC in the body from purely smoking weed. Marijuana is not highly addictive, unlike the likes of alcohol or tobacco. As such, it is unfair to treat marijuana users more harshly under the law. For more than 25 years, researchers have searched for a marijuanainduced “amotivational syndrome” and have failed. People who are intoxicated constantly, regardless of the drug, are unlikely to be productive members of society. There is nothing specific about marijuana that causes people to lose their drive or ambition. In lab studies, subjects given high doses of marijuana for several days or
would reduce sales and use. Obscene profits can be made from illegal marijuana sales. If there were a legal market for it, dealers would have to adjust their prices accordingly, due to competition. Over time, the use of weed would go down, due to the elimination of the “forbidden fruit” aspect. In addition, marijuana’s illegality makes foreign cultivation and smuggling extremely profitable, sending billions of dollars overseas in an underground economy while diverting funds from productive economic development here at home. In addition, a legal market would reduce exposure to other drugs in the illegal market. Many argue that marijuana is a gateway drug. This is not true, and there is no evidence to support the assertion that a causal link exists. However, I would agree that the less contact with shifty drug dealers, the better. The legalization of marijuana would bring sales out in the open and eliminate the need to deal with unscrupulous individuals. The number of persecutions and arrests for marijuana are ridiculous. Our justice system spends far too much money processing people for marijuana-related charges — billions of dollars, wasted on this needless prohibition. We are already burdened with an overcrowded prison system; we should not be arresting people for the possession of or the use of weed. Instead, the space should be used for actual criminals, like murderers and rapists. The Controlled Substances Act — part of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 — is the law that makes marijuana illegal on the federal level. Marijuana should be eliminated from that law, as those who are legally considered adults should be able to buy and use the drug. Indeed, cannabis should be legalized for the numerous reasons I outlined above.

Don’t shade real issues with controversy Restore peace, community to social fabric This election cycle features voting during church services and an attempt to recall Supreme Court justices for upholding marriage between two consenting adults — gay marriage. To those of us who
expect Christianity to live up to the values it preaches, the effort of churches to vote these justices out of office is particularly disturbing. Christianity is supposed to be about love for your neighbor and tolerance of human frailty. A barely secular campaign — one with much evangelical church support — seems to be a vengeful act. It will

not restore peace and community to our frayed social fabric. We face serious problems, the most painful of which is the Great Recession. It came close to being another Great Depression. This has caused serious economic dislocation which has made
family life difficult. The number of homeless and poverty-stricken families is growing. Will this effort do anything to remedy this situation? More serious for the long run is global warming. Extreme weather, 500- and 100-year floods occurring every few years, heat and fires in the west — all these phenomena are part of climate change that may
irrevocably alter our planet. Humankind must alter the way to we live on this earth. That day may come sooner rather than later. Isn’t this more important than whether two individuals commit to love and cherish each other? What difference will all of this make if we cannot live on this planet?

Iowa State falls hard to No. 10 Utah By Jake.Lovett iowastatedaily.com
One week after nearly everything went right for the Cyclones, positives were hard to find Saturday night. Riding high after a 14-point win over Texas Tech, Iowa State (3-3, 1-1 Big 12) fell to No. 10 Utah (5-0, 2-0 Mountain West) 68-27 at Jack Trice Stadium. “There was clearly a big difference in team speed out there tonight,” said ISU coach Paul Rhoads. “That showed in all three phases ... and we were soundly beat in all three phases of the game.” The Utes came in as the 10th-ranked team in the country, but only as six-point favorites over
the Cyclones. The game’s first quarter ended with Iowa State leading 14-10 and gave ISU fans hope of an upset. But the Utes’ 31-point second quarter was more than enough to put the game out of reach. Iowa State was held scoreless for 23:35 while Utah scored 34 unanswered points. “We lost energy,” Rhoads said. Iowa State got its first two scores off of Utah turnovers to take the 14-10 lead. After the first ISU touchdown, Utah got a field goal and forced an ISU three-and-out. On the ensuing punt, Ute return man Shaky Smithson brought the ball back 78 yards to the ISU 2-yard line, and Utah would score on the next play. Another Utah turnover, though, put Iowa

Strong Kansas start upsets Cyclones By Dan.Tracy iowastatedaily.com
The Kansas Jayhawks capitalized on an impressive defensive performance to beat their first top-10 ranked opponent in program history, defeating No. 10 Iowa State 3-1 (25-14, 25-23, 2025, 25-17). Kansas senior libero Melissa Manda turned in a career-high performance with 32 digs as the Jayhawks held the Cyclones (11-4, 4-3 Big 12) to a .182 hitting percentage just three nights after hitting a season-best .441 against Texas Tech. Offensively
for the Jayhawks, senior Karina Garlington led the team with 18 kills on a .378 clip. “I think they did a good job of doubling up blockers on our outside, and we just weren’t able to generate offense in our other positions,” said ISU coach Christy Johnson-Lynch. The Jayhawks jumped out to an early lead, hitting .353 en route to a 25-14 victory in the first set. The 14 points by Iowa State was its lowest total in a set since scoring only 11 in their season-ending loss to Nebraska in the 2009 NCAA Tournament. The Cyclones outhit the
Jayhawks in the second set .261 to .231, but Kansas used three of its four service aces to put away the Cyclones 25-23 and head into the locker room up 2-0. Leavenworth, Kan., native Victoria Henson came out for the third set and dominated at the net, putting down eight kills as the Cyclones hit .333 in a 25-20 win in the third. However that would be the end
of the comeback as the Cyclones couldn’t generate any offense, hitting .026 in the Jayhawks’ 25-17 victory in the fourth set. Henson finished with a matchand season-high 22 kills on a .308 clip. Junior right-side hitter Kelsey Petersen also hit for double-digit kills with 10. Sophomore setter Alison Landwehr ended with 43 assists,

ISU teams to compete in Illinois, Ohio invitationals Women hope to improve on last year’s fifth-place finish
Men face fast greens at Ohio’s Firestone Invitational
By Dan.Martin iowastatedaily.com
By Dean.Berhow-Goll iowastatedaily.com
The ISU women’s golf team is traveling to Glencoe, Ill., to compete in the annual Lady Northern Invitational. The 54-hole tournament runs Monday and Tuesday. The Cyclones are looking to top their fifthplace finish at the Lady Northern Invitational last year. The field will consist of 12 teams. Northwestern is hosting the tournament at Lake Shore Country Club, a 6,303-yard, par-72 course. Texas Tech is the only Big 12 Conference opponent for the Cyclones. 10 of the 11 teams are from the Big Ten. The Cyclones are ranked 32nd nationally following two second-place finishes and one fourth-place finish in the season’s opening three tournaments.
The toughest competition will likely come from Purdue, who has won the tournament the past two years. Purdue is ranked sixth nationally and has five golfers ranked in the top 90. The Cyclones know what to expect from the Boilermakers after last week’s Collegiate Classic Invitational. Purdue took first, edging out the Cyclones by seven strokes. Iowa State is also ready to compete against its in-state rival, the Iowa Hawkeyes. “Obviously every time we play the Hawkeyes it’s going to be exciting,” said coach Christie Martens. “Unlike other sports, it’s not a head-to-head competition because we will be playing against the whole field. I hope we can play well in the tournament, and hopefully that includes beating the Hawkeyes.” Other teams in the Invitational will be
Confidence continues to grow for members of the ISU men’s golf team, with just two tournaments left in their fall schedule. The Cyclones travel to Akron, Ohio, for the Firestone Invitational, scheduled for Monday and Tuesday. The tournament will be played at the Firestone Country Club, which has a reputation for being a tough course. “We’re focusing on speed on the putting greens,” said ISU coach Andrew Tank. “The greens at this tournament are very fast, and that’s what we’ve been focusing on.” The team is coming off of its best tournament of the season, finishing second at the D.A. Weibring Invitational, and seems to be picking up momentum. Leading the team so far is Nate McCoy. The junior from Dowling Catholic medaled in
an earlier tournament and finished in a tie for fifth at last week’s meet. “I feel good. I am confident in my routine and my pre-tournament preparation. I just have to play my game,” McCoy said. Last week Tank and assistant Patrick Datz shook up the lineup and started sophomore Borja Virto over Nathan Leary, who had been struggling as of late. It proved to be the right decision as Virto finished in a tie for fifth overall with McCoy. This past week of qualifying has Leary and Tom Lathrop sneaking into the lineup along with Virto and Michael Wuertz and McCoy. The team is feeling poised to have another strong tournament. “We’re always looking to make improvements,” Tank said. “I feel great about how everyone’s been preparing. Hopefully it’ll show in our performance in Akron.”

A young team will make mistakes. Whether it can bounce back from those mistakes and still create wins is the tough part. Unfortunately for the Cyclones, wins have been hard to come by in the past two series. Last week, Oklahoma swept the Cyclones. Friday, the Arizona State Sun Devils eked out a 3-2 victory over Iowa State. The Sun Devils completed their own sweep of the Cyclones, shutting down the young squad 5-0 Saturday. â€œThis was a building weekend,â€? said senior goalie Erik Hudson. â€œThey are more experienced, and we are a younger team. They had better defense and crisper passes.â€? Even though an 8-2 scoring advantage for the Sun Devils in the series seems dominating, Iowa State had plenty of chances to score. The combination of veteran goaltending and mishandling of pucks prevented the Cyclones from cashing in on those chances. â€œWe had our chances, but just couldnâ€™t capitalize on any,â€? said forward James Werner, who scored the only two goals of the series for Iowa State. The inability to convert on the power play plagued the Cyclones during the weekend.
Iowa State had six opportunities on the power play and failed to score on any of them. â€œSpecial teams were huge,â€? said senior forward Mike Lebler. â€œIf we would have gone 1-for-4 on the power play Friday, that ties the game, thatâ€™s huge.â€? Coach Al Murdoch also observed the inefficiency of special teams and had a simple answer. â€œThe power play needs work,â€? Murdoch said. The Cyclones stayed out of the penalty box during Saturdayâ€™s contest, a sign of better discipline. Chemistry and puck handling is still a concern. Sophomore Justin Wilkinson understood the talent of the opposition. â€œThey were good competition. We need to get our conďŹ dence back,â€? Wilkinson said. â€œWe are in a little bit of a slump right now. We keep coming up short.â€? Stressing conditioning, Murdochâ€™s young team has shown it can win races to the puck and create scoring opportunities. This weekend Iowa State ran into a Sun Devil squad with good goaltending and a defense that was ready for the challenge. â€œAs I suspected, the competition gets tougher,â€? Murdoch said. â€œFriday nightâ€™s game
Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, No. 39 Minnesota, No. 48 Northwestern, No. 21 Ohio State, Penn State, Texas Tech and Wisconsin. The Cyclones are bringing true freshman Prima Thammaraks, sophomore Punpaka Phuntumabamrung, freshman Sasikarn On-iam, senior Victoria Stefansen, senior Laurence Herman and junior Kristin Paulson to the tournament, and the four low-
est player scores will be counted toward the team total. Phuntumabamrung has proven herself to be one of the top golfers at the collegiate level, and Thammaraks is coming off a second-place ďŹ nish at last weekâ€™s Windy City Collegiate Classic Invitational. The Lady Northern Invitational will kick off with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. Monday. The ďŹ nal round will commence at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
Morgan Marlborough and Jordan Jackson made their presence known Friday afternoon, as they either scored or assisted in each of Nebraskaâ€™s four goals on Friday to give the Cyclones their third consecutive loss. Sophomore forward Marlborough scored the ďŹ rst goal of the game to put the Huskers up 1-0, after she came in from the right side and put the ball over Cyclone freshman keeper Maddie Jobe in the 27th minute. Just four minutes later, redshirt freshman Stacy Bartels added to the Nebraska lead with a header off a corner kick. Cyclone freshman midďŹ elder Emily Goldstein put Iowa State back in contention with a shot from 15 yards out that got past Husker keeper Emma Stevens in the 38th minute. Goldsteinâ€™s goal proved to be the last of the offense from Iowa State as Marlborough scored again in the 73rd minute off a center pass from sophomore forward Jordan Jackson to put Nebraska up 3-1. The Cornhuskers sealed the game in the 77th minute after Jackson scored from 10 yards out to give Nebraska the threegoal lead. Nebraska out-shot Iowa State 25-11 on the game and had 10 corner kicks to the Cyclonesâ€™ four. After the loss, Iowa Stateâ€™s record is 6-6-2, 1-3-0 in the Big 12, and Nebraska improved to 10-4-0 and 3-2-0 in the conference.
Cyclonesâ€™ losing streak lengthens to four, lose 3-1 to Colorado Buffaloes By Cory.Weaver iowastatedaily.com The Cyclones continued their losing skid Sunday, losing to Colorado 3-1 in Boulder, Colo. Iowa State jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the 23rd minute after freshman defender Jessica Stewart scored her second goal of the season. The lead lasted just seven minutes before Colorado sophomore midďŹ elder Shaye Marshall got a pass from junior midďŹ elder Kate Russell at the top of the box. Marshall then put the ball past Cyclone freshman keeper Maddie Jobe to tie the game. Iowa State entered halftime 1-1, while being outshot 6-4 in the ďŹ rst half. The majority of the sec-
ond half was scoreless until Russell got in on the action again, scoring in the 79th minute on a shot from 25 yards out, ďŹ nding the net over Jobeâ€™s reach. The Buffaloes sealed the win with a late goal by senior defender Kym Lowry in the 87th minute. Lowry was assisted by junior midďŹ elder Kassidy Fitzpatrick and freshman forward Alex Dohm. Colorado out-shot Iowa State 16-6 in the second half and 22-10 on the game, and improved to a record of 6-7-1 and 2-3-1 in the Big 12 conference. The Cyclones dropped to 6-7-2 on the season, 1-4-0 in the Big 12. Iowa Stateâ€™s next game at home at the ISU Soccer Complex on Friday against Texas A&M at 6:30 p.m.

>>HENSON.p8 and senior libero Ashley Mass led the Cyclones with 22 digs. â€œVictoria was amazing out there,â€? JohnsonLynch said. â€œShe had two blockers on her all night, but she played with a lot of heart and she did just about everything we could have asked from her.â€? Besides Henson, who accounted for 43 percent of the ISU kills, the Cyclones hit for only a .121 hitting percentage on the evening. â€œWe didnâ€™t really have any standout performances at the other positions, when we really need three or four players to play well if we want to take a match like that on the road,â€?

for 178 yards and two touchdowns, but he also was sacked and threw two interceptions. The ISU offense was held to 348 total yards and was unable to convert any of its 11 third-down tries. â€œWe played right into their hands,â€? Arnaud said. â€œWe were moving the ball at times, but ... Iâ€™ll credit to them. They were ďŹ‚ying around and moving around, and we just didnâ€™t get it done.â€? Although the ISU defense was the reason for the Cyclonesâ€™ fast start, it seemed it could do no right once the
Lynch said. The loss for the Cyclones was the ďŹ rst to an unranked opponent since being swept at Oklahoma on Nov. 22, 2008. With 13 regularseason matches remaining, Johnson-Lynch hopes her team will be able to respond with improvement following the upset. â€œWe have to keep working hard,â€? JohnsonLynch said. â€œThereâ€™s a lot of season left and a lot of matches left, we just have to get to practice this week and focus on improving every day.â€? Iowa State will look to bounce back when it hosts the other SunďŹ‚ower State opponent in the Big 12, Kansas State (9-9, 3-4), at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Ames High.
ďŹ rst quarter came to an end. When the ISU offense came off of the ďŹ eld in the second quarter, the defense was put in bad positions to keep Utah out of the end zone. The Cyclonesâ€™ defense allowed 15 ďŹ rst downs in the quarter, and itâ€™s regular â€œbenddonâ€™t-breakâ€? style yielded four drives ending in the end zone. â€œThey came out fast,â€? said ISU linebacker A.J. Klein. â€œWe just have to adjust to the speed and tempo, and we didnâ€™t really do that ... We didnâ€™t really do that well.â€? Klein was tied with safety David Sims, who forced both of Utahâ€™s turnovers, for the team
lead in stops with 10 each. In the end, though, the unit gave up 28 ďŹ rst downs and 593 yards and allowed Utah to convert eight of 13 third downs. Following three straight home games and the loss to Utah, Iowa State now takes to the road for two consecutive weeks, traveling to No. 6 Oklahoma and to Austin, Texas, to face the Longhorns. The game with Oklahoma will be the Cyclonesâ€™ third straight against a team coming off of a bye week. â€œWe had an excellent week of preparation,â€? Rhoads said. â€œWeâ€™ve got to go back and ďŹ nd answers.â€?

Daily Horoscope : by Nancy Black and Stephanie Clements
Virgo: Capture Imagination Today’s birthday (10/11/10). If you obsess over personal issues, you lose power in the social or career arena. Overcome this tendency by detailing work priorities and sharing the list with family members. That way they’ll know what’s on your plate and understand your moods better. To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) -- Today is an 8 -- Combine romance with work today by including your partner in social events involving clients and co-workers. Use creativity to make it really fun.
Level: medium INSTRUCTIONS: Complete the grid so each row, column and 3-by-3 box (in bold borders) contains every number 1 to 9. For strategies on solving Sudoku, visit
Taurus (April 20-May 20) -- Today is a 6 -- Your many talents take you in different directions now. Follow the traditional wisdom as far as it will take you. Then be willing to branch out. Gemini (May 21-June 21) -- Today is a 7 -- Work closely with children and elders to produce better results. You share talents you may not know about. Listen and learn from each other.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) -- Today is a 6 -- A friend or associate brings a gift to a social event at your place, sparking the interests and talents of all guests. Let others play first. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Work and play interweave in an unusual way today. Time away from a problem often allows a solution to emerge. Other imaginations provide the missing key. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today is a 6 -- Shop for supplies early in the day, so everyone has what they need to get their work done. Capture imagination with the right tools. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Even if you have to work today, make time for recreational activities. You don’t need to push that stone uphill all day. Hand it off to someone. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Today is a 6 -- Allow your thinking to wander now. Blurred focus is just what you need, as you apply artistic talents. Use a light touch and broad stroke.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Today is a 6 -- When issues impinge on your core values, pay attention. You don’t want to give up something important to your philosophy. Others suggest solutions. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Today is a 7 -- The more you work within your sphere of comfort, the more you accomplish. Associates see broader possibilities for future consideration. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -Today is a 9 -- You need to clarify a philosophical point if the group’s to move forward. You may call in an expert to clarify specific details and concerns. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Today is a 9 -- No one knew what you’d say today, not even yourself. The big surprise is that everyone agrees and wonders why they didn’t think of it themselves.
